Will E-Bikes Replace MTBs? | EMBN Show Ep. 48

Published on November 28th 2018


Will there come a time when E-bikes replace conventional mountain bikes? There has always been a healthy banter between the different MTB disciplines, but are people moving entirely away from mountain biking? Steve and Chris take a closer look, reflecting on what we're seeing on the trails, using figures of bike sales across the world, and insights from Specialized founder Mike Sinyard. We also take a look at the suspension demands of Chris and a super cool homemade bike light. Subscribe: http://embn.me/subscribenow Our shop: http://embn.me/ew What do you think?
